But aren't they lovely? I am loving their vintage look. They are reprints of the original first edition releases, illustrated by Pauline Baynes.
I realised recently that it had been so long since I read these stories that I couldn't remember them, and thought it would be nice to revisit them all. Then I realised that I didn't actually own them all, so I have now amended that, with apologies to CS Lewis and my book collection.
The covers are lovely. You can see them all here.
I may seem to have been indulgent of late. Even though the company and the publishing industry as a whole is struggling, they did give us a small bonus, as usual, at work in March. So I got myself those solar umbrellas, a few books of my 'wish list', bought some new running shoes that I needed anyway, and aimed to be sensible with what was left (and shelved the idea of an iPad, a coffee machine or a stereo system for now!). Below are two other novels I have been wanting to read for some time. I'm looking forward to beginning them when I have finished a few other books.
